I could've sworn you were off fighting aboard a Squid somewhere.

Evidently, you aren't. Lemme go point the flak cannon at someone else.

EDIT: Right, there's a new post, the raider's alive, and I just missed a raider truck by a mile.

Now, this operates on the assumption that the caravan is within my arcs. Is that assumption correct?

I ban ramjamslam for no apparent reason.

Also, did anyone check what the elements spelled out?

Gunnery Deck

Koali soon tired of waiting for an opening and opted to scan around the battlefield. He soon noticed that Alister was in trouble. He set the arming timer on the shell in the left barrel, aimed, and pulled the trigger.

The shell blasted out of the barrel at high speed, whizzed past Alister, and slammed into the third raider's head, effectively decapitating him. Thankfully, the raider's head wasn't hard enough to cause a premature detonation.

"In about five seconds, that shell is going to make a crater in the ground."

Is it OK for me to be a ridiculously good gunner, or, at the very least, extremely lucky?

Also, I haven't fired yet because I'd rather avoid collateral damage.

*Still in Koali's flashback*

The split Squid was obliterated. However, so was the Flakfish. The Typhoon was already heavily damaged, and the recommended load of Lochnagar powder was one paper cartridge (which Koali later discovered when he read the warning on the other side of the bag). Koali was catapulted far off into the distance to land somewhere outside the town of Cathedral, the heat of the blast mildly cooking his skin to a shade of red resembling a rather harsh sunburn. The crazy captain, on the other hand, wasn't so lucky. Though he wasn't launched, he fell from the sky with the burning wreckage that was once his pride and joy, only to land on a girder that broke his spine.

*Back to reality*

As Koali loaded a pair of shells into the Typhoon, he looked down at the pouch of Lochnagar cartridges.

Soon, but not now. Not until I can practice.

He took aim toward the caravan and waited for an opening.

BAM! I actually took time writing something.

Gunnery Deck

"Someone keep firing that thing!"

That was all Koali could make out among the explosions. He quickly jumped to his feet and puffed over to the Typhoon, the claws on his mechanical legs digging into the deck with each step. As he hopped into the turret seat, he remembered one of his earlier voyages.

*Fancy flashback effect*

Though Koali had crewed under several other captains in the past, none were as crazy as this one. This captain insisted on flying an old Goldfish of a design that was several generations out of date. Even worse, he refused to associate with "hip" or "modern" pilots who mounted a Manticore on the front of the ship, and wanted nothing to do with the actual smart, competent crowd that had the sense to mount a Hellhound in that spot. No, this captain thought he looked sharp flying what everyone called a Flakfish.

That captain apparently had some unfinished business with some no-name thugs that decided to chase after him on what looked like two halves of a Squid, crudely split down the middle to create two independent (and highly unstable) fighter ships. Well, though they weren't expert pilots, they knew how to use flamethrowers.

Everything was aflame, and the engines were disabled. The thugs were cocky enough to make a final attack run from straight ahead.

The captain tossed Koali a leather bag stuffed full of paper cartridges. "Gunner! Give'em a taste of this!"

Koali loaded a shell into the cannon, then crammed in about ten of the cartridges behind the shell before closing the breech. He lined up the split Squid in his sights, and as he pulled the trigger, he glanced down at the single word written on the outside of the bag:


I ban HamsterIV.


Beryllium Carbon Gold Selenium
Fluorine Uranium Carbon Potassium
Yttrium Oxygen Uranium
Thorium Astatine
Iodine Sulfur
Tungsten Hydrogen Yttrium.

Pardon my French.

I know I should just read, but can I get a tl;dr of the battle? As in, who's fighting, where, and am I involved?

I ban Gary because no.

Gunnery Deck

Koali awoke, slightly dizzy. He'd forgotten to recalibrate his steam legs to properly grip a ship's flooring and had therefore tripped and hit his head when the Eagle's Shadow took off.

"Aw, crap. If that Carn guy finds out it's this easy knock me out he'll probably just toss me overboard."

He adjusted some dials and walked over to what was left of the flak cannon and the engineers puttering around trying to fix it.

"So, uh... Is there... Is there anything I should do to help, or...?"

The gunnery deck is open to the elements like the lower deck of a Galleon, right?

After making sure Alister was gone, Koali snuck back into the room and hunted for some kind of ladder to retrieve the marker. Thankfully for the rest of the crew, he didn't find one, so he instead decided to go to the gunnery deck and see what was happening.

"Isn't it normal for the ridiculous character to draw moustaches on people when they're unconscious? You guys have been out for weeks!"
